First Love 

First Love

The face at the window was of a girl; an example of those old-fashioned sweetness and light popsies who used to abound before innocence was abandoned even by the youngest among us.

Twin beams of the summer sun glanced through beside each of her cheeks and spot-lit the carpet in front of my armchair like two huge shimmering eyes.

But, then, her face startled and vanished - blending the shafts into one boundless tunnel of gold.

I soon realised, however, that I had fallen in love at last with a real life girl - for, surely, ghosts can’t shed shadows nor cast eyes.

I rushed out into the warm sunshine of the empty garden.
